Two-thirds of the 490,000 registered voters had cast their ballots by 8 pm, an hour before the polling stations closed, the Centre for Democratic Transition said.
Pollsters predicted Vujanovic would claim more than half of the votes cast for the repeat of the 2003 vote, when he won in the first round. Should he however win les than 50 per cent of the ballot, he would face the top challenger in a run-off on April 20.
His rivals, fronting the fragmented opposition, were Andrija Mandic of the Serbian List, the Movement for Change chief Nebojsa Medojevic and Srdjan Milic of Socialist People's Party. None were of them were tipped to win more than 20 per cent of the votes.
Nearly 900 domestic and foreign observers were monitoring the election. First unofficial results were expected shortly after the voting ends at 9 pm (2000 GMT).
